Large bright white light traveling quicky in the Northwest sky

I was getting ready for bed and around 1:15 my dog wanted to go outside. I let her out and waited about 15 minutes then started for the back door and noticed a big white light through the window.

My first thought was that it was a street light and maybe the storm had knocked down trees that normally block them on the next street over. When I opened the door I saw the light was over the trees and moving very fast traveling East in the Northwest sky making no sound. It was as large and bright as a streetlight! I watched it for several seconds until it was blocked by a neighbor's tree.

I ran inside to grab my phone and headed out the front door but it was gone. I went back in and out the backdoor to get my dog and she would not come to me. She was crying and would not come out from underneath the house. I finally had to coax her to come out.
